Hi, I recently got this HDTV and it stretches my PS2 games image which makes them look very akward, I tried the menu under picture but the only think that seems to work is to set it at 4:3 ratio rather than 16:9, but the instructions say that I shouldn't use it on 4:3 for a long time because of burn-in.

also, is there a noticeable difference between using HDMI cables and component cables for HD gaming?

I have my PS2 set for 16:9 and it looks terrible still. the brun-in that you mention MIGHT happen if you own a plasma TV. If you have an LCD or DLP it won't happen.

As far as component and HDMI go they are about equal.

so there is no way PS2 wil look ok then : /
ohh it IS an LCD TV but I'd rather not have it in 4:3 if the manual says not to, I wonder why would they leave the option there tough.

The manual is dumb then. Running it in 16:9 or 4:3 won't hurt it.

My PS2 looks all jagged and distorted on my 57" set. I'm trying to find a solution but I think it's simply that it's much older than the TV is. It's connected over component which makes the colors pretty but doesn't help much else.
